Cinnabar and Quartz

ID: CC39
A gorgeous sparkling miniature featuring tiny glassy Quartz needles to 4mm height surrounding lustrous silvery red Cinnabar crystals. The Cinnabar crystals measure to 7mm width, are highly lustrous, and translucent bright red when backlit. They appear to have a finely pitted surface on some crystal faces. The Quartz and Cinnabar crystals cover the whole specimens with a contact point on the base. Sparkles like a mirror ball!
